The Bahamas’ updated entry protocols — following WHO and CDC guidelines — outline that to be considered fully vaccinated, travellers must have “the full dose of the same vaccine.”
The Bahamas Government (Ministry of Health) will only be accepting vaccinations by Moderna, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca at this time.
Under the current protocols, if a traveller received a first dose of AstraZeneca and a second dose of Pfizer, they will not be considered fully vaccinated.
However, Paul Strachan, Sr. Director Canada, Bahamas Tourist Office, notes that “the Government of The Bahamas Ministry of Health will continue to evaluate the changing information from both the WHO and the CDC.”
Updated: As of the morning of July 17, www.Bahamas.com/travelupdates no longer specifies that travellers who received mixed vaccine doses would not be considered fully vaccinated.
